Benefits of Gymnastics for Children

Sign-up Now for Summer Camps at Rock N' Roll Gymnastics Academy

By Lauren Dennis owner of Rock N' Roll Gymnastic Academy LLC. April 7, 2021

Gymnastics is a sport that is filled with many physical and mental benefits for children.  Studies have shown that cognitive skills are enhanced in children in an environment that includes the body as well as the mind. The intense movement that takes place during gymnastics increases concentration and focus. This creates success in children not only in the gym, but also at school and home.  A few of the physical benefits of gymnastics include the development of flexibility, balance, coordination, and strength. Some of the mental benefits include the development of a positive self-esteem, confidence, discipline, sportsmanship, and social skills.         

Ninja Warrior Training also has a variety of benefits!  Our classes provide children with ways to develop goal setting skills, agility, body awareness, balance, coordination, strength, and flexibility.

Rock N’ Roll Gymnastics Academy, located in Shavertown, is offering a variety of gymnastics and ninja warrior summer camps.  They are primarily for children ages 4 and up, but they are also offering a special pre-school half-day week.  Each summer camp is specifically scheduled and organized with engaging instruction, challenges and filled with exciting themes!  All of the camps are limited in size, temperature checks will be conducted upon entry, all coaches will wear masks, and students will be indoors, outdoors, and socially distanced. 

Camps are filling up quickly!
